Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 There's a pardon full and sweet,
'Tis for you, 'tis for me;
Blessed rest at Jesus' feet,
'Tis for you and me.

Chorus:
All for you, if you believe,
If salvation you'll receive;
There's a welcome, warm and true,
All for you, all for me.

2 There's a help for ev'ry day,
'Tis for you, 'tis for me;
Joy and blessing by the way,
'Tis for you and me. [Chorus]

3 There's a robe of snowy white
'Tis for you, 'tis for me;
There's a home of glory bright,
'Tis for you and me. [Chorus]
